The Guild’s 2022 Yearbook, which looks back on past activities and ahead to events and awards to come, was distributed in early February.
The Yearbook is a major benefit of membership, offering contact details for all members, including editors and staff journalists, freelancers, content agencies and agricultural PR and marketing companies, and providing exposure for those Guild members offering writing, PR and other services.
The publication also provides first-hand accounts of the experiences of members who have earned travel bursaries through the Guild or won one of the many written and photographic awards on offer, and provides an insight into the Guild’s relationship with the international agricultural communicator organisations ENAJ and IFAJ, and the very special opportunities they offer members.
The wider work of the Guild’s management council is documented, providing insight into how the organisation plans to grow and evolve in the future.
As chairman Olivia Cooper highlights in the Yearbook’s foreword, the impact of Covid-19 changed everything yet Guild members continued to enjoy a number of online social events and training opportunities, while enthusiastically welcoming the return of the Bangers & Beer get-together at the Cereals Event and another wonderful Harvest Service at St Brides Church, Fleet Street and Harvest Lunch at Pewterer’s Livery Hall in the City.
All members should have received a copy of the Yearbook in the post; please contact Guild secretary Nikki Robertson with your mailing address if yours has not arrived.
